About the book:


With a girlfriend’s companionship and a professional counselor’s expertise, Dr. Laurel Shaler walks you through personal stories and biblical insights that shed light on daily and traumatic stress. In Reclaiming Sanity, she shows

  • How to find freedom from the past
  • Five myths about anger and how to overcome them
  • The antidote for nagging worry and sleepless nights
  • Ways to rebuild trust in others
  • How Christ gives true strength

Offering effective action steps toward reclaiming sanity, Dr. Shaler guides you through the healing process, whether you are dealing with a one-time traumatic event or years of hidden pain.

My Review:

The book discusses emotional healing. Starts out discussing PTSD and how you know you have it. The book has different sections, Part 1 and Part 2 is called reclaiming me. Part 3 is reclaiming peace. Then the last section is reclaiming sanity. The book does have some real life stories in it. 

A couple of quotes from the book, “ the reality is that our past, our whole past, affects our present.” “ Only you can control yourself “. 

There is a couple of chapters on being angry. A lot of good points on controlling your angry. I like the one about getting angry while driving at other people when running late. Not the other person fault that your running late. 

I received an complimentary book from Celebrate Lit. I was not required to write an positive review. This is my own opinion.
